Located on New Road in Clondalkin Village, the school is under the patronage of Archbishop Diarmuid Martin.

“However, many pupils of different persuasions attend our school and their religious outlook is respected,” said Orla Ní Odhráin on the school website.

“Our aim is to provide a learning environment in which each child is encouraged to develop his/her capabilities to the fullest extent. Pupils in our school are expected to always give of their best.

We are committed to providing the best possible environment to facilitate this development, as we believe that a child who is happy in school makes the best progress.
